    Roman ruins are always 5 stars
    Absolutely worth it to go check it out. No need to pay to see it as well. Quite a lot of history surrounding the discovery of this Ruin - well worth reading on it because it is quite a recent find.

    Beautiful and fun city but be aware of pick pockets - they are indeed professional.
    Absolutely beautiful city! We used "Hop on Hop off" bus service. Had a great time with the exception of one event ... Teatro Romano ... caution. Pick Pocking seems to be prevalent in the area particularly near Teatro Romano. Be careful of the guy that claims "bird droppings" are on your back. "Let me help you clean up". Do not isolate yourself on a self walking tour.

    The Romans where here
    We visited this place during a trip around Andalusia. We booked a tour to the Acazaba and the Roman theater. You would not go to Malaga to visit this place. But if you are in Malaga anyway, you should see the location. It is not as big as other Roman places but it is interesting that there was a time when the Roman have been in this area.

The Greeks also started a tradition of using the hillside for theater, such as the theater in Taormina, Sicily. The Roman theater is the archaeological remains of the theater of ancient Malaca. This theater is small and corresponded to the population of Roman Malaca. The theater was only discovered in 1951 while planning the landscape of the Alcazaba slope. To open the entire object, the House of culture, built on the site of the theater in the 90s of the XX century, was demolished after much discussion. What can't you do for science?

This surprising Roman theater can be found at the foot of the Alcazaba fortress.

It was built in the first century BC, under Emperor Augustus, and was used until the third century AD.

After that, it was left to ruin for centuries, until the Moors settled in Andalucia. The stones were used to build the Alcazaba fortress.

The theater was rediscovered in 1951. In 2011 after a long reconstruction, it was reopened to the public.

The site itself is beautiful. I was out on my own in Malaga and decided to sit in the amphitheatre and enjoy some sun. It was lovely until I made the mistake of eating a bite sized piece of candy from my purse.

The attendant ran over to me yelling “No eating” so I responded “Ok sorry” and tried to quickly chew and swallow my candy. I thought that would be the end of it, but she stood over me and started giving me a lecture “You are in a museum! Did you not read the sign?!” Maybe this is something that is lost in translation, but in English that’s a rude and unnecessarily aggressive way to respond to someone who just apologized. I said sorry again and she didn’t leave so I wasn’t sure if she was kicking me out or what. I decided to just get up and go.

On my way out a couple came in with gelato cones. I expected them to get the same lecture about food, but nothing happened. When I passed the amphitheater from the street I could see them eating their gelato maybe 10 feet away from the museum staff member who lectured me.

It felt like I was targeted for some reason.

The Teatro Romano is a nice central spot in front of the Alcazaba. Nice place to just hear the history of the city when on your walking tours, is a central spot for a lot of things in historic section of Malaga.
Gives you great views of Alcazaba and learn the history of Roman theatres in Malaga.

Málaga include planty of historical buildings and ruins coming from times of Phoenicians, Romans, Visigots, Arabian times and New Era too, all of them spreaded around City, in some sellers etc... Just explore...
Roman theater is one of them such a nicely excavacated in The heart of City.
You Can walk through to feel starting our Era or just síť down in front in The Night to enjoy 2000 year Old impession under the lights.

It was not open, but you can see it from the street. It is probably the smallest of its type I have seen, but it was either re-furbed or it is in perhaps the best condition of any I have seen. You can see the Alcazaba looming above which enhances the image. Is the theater, itself a must see if you seen others, larger, more impressive? No. However, when you visit the Alcazaba, take a gander for a few minutes. Why not? It’s free.

in front of the Alcabaza & Gibralfaro you will find the Roman theatre.
Entry is via a small visitor centre, where you view a video history
and then proceed to view the monument itself. Bearing in mind it was only discovered approximately 30 years ago, it is a real wonder....you can allocate little or a lot of time..whatever suits you.

I visited here quite a lot of times and trust me this roman teatro located right under the Alcazaba castle is a great place to pass buy. You can see the historic theater and maybe sit down there for a bit. The place is definitely quite touristy with some home made souvenirs which people are selling there too. Overall a good visit

Due to trying to fit too much in we did not get a proper tour of this site. We passed by it late in the evening on our way to dinner. That said the ruins are pretty accessible to the naked eye from the viewing platform which is open to the public at all times period if you're a super Roman antiquities buff then it may be worth visiting during opening hours but otherwise it's really just a passerby experience. And with close proximity to many cafes, you can stare at it at leisure over a glass of wine.
